Dancing for IVF


Okay, a Pink Rose award to Christina, a woman I just saw on Master of Dance, a game show where you dance to different songs for a chance to win money. And not professional dancers, either. Just regular ole' folk, any age, any size. ( I was just channel surfing and it caught my eye; it's like Don't Forget the Lyrics but with dancing.) The host asked her what she would use the money for if she won. She announced to the ENTIRE WORLD that she had been trying to conceive for 4 years with her hubby (who was cheering her on in the audience) and she wanted the money for fertility treatments! The entire viewing world people! I don't know how many people watch the show, but it's got to be at least a million, right?

Personally, I thought her competitor was better, but I just wanted her to win so she could pay for her IVF treatments. Well, she won!!!! Dancing for IVF money, people. Americans, you gotta love their spirit!

That's so great! I hope she gets her baby out of that - what a great story to be able to tell your child! Thanks for posting this - it's a nice way to start the morning.

That's cool! I'm glad she won - these treatments can be darn expensive. I remember the couple who won The Amazing Race one year were going to use some of the money for fertility treatments.

LOVE IT! I am soooo glad she won and sooo glad she said what she would do if she did. Good for her! And like annacyclopedisa said what a fabulous story to tell your kids. Here's hoping that she does IVF and has a baby or two!
